There are several issues at play here. There's the claims of RS, acting on copyrights they own and claims of estates that RS is acting on behalf of.

An estate could claim they own a series, but they might not - it could be in the PD or there could be another copyright owner. A licensee of the estate would be acting on what the estate tells them they have the rights to.

Again, part of the problem is that ownership isn't clear because some some additional research needs to be done or there are no records to clarify things.
